Vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy may raise risk of multiple sclerosis in offspring
from Medical Research
Previous work has shown that adequate vitamin D nutrition is associated with a lower risk of multiple sclerosis. Results from studies examining whether adequate vitamin D exposure during early-life are also associated with a lower risk of MS have been mixed. One study reported that daughters of mothers with high dietary vitamin D intake during their pregnancy had a reduced risk of multiple sclerosis, while two studies measuring 25-hydroxy vitamin D either in a blood sample from the pregnant mother or from a sample taken from the neonate, were not associated with future multiple sclerosis risk in the child.
